5 – The Fifth Great Teacher is Feelings
Feelings teach us about respect and honour of the physical
Oh boy, feelings. As an person who has been an addict this is a big one. Feelings is what I was suppressing with my addictive behaviour, feelings that were too painful for me to handle. So when I chose sobriety, whoosh I had to learn to deal with feelings another way. One of the first ways I dealt with feelings was to escape into my mind, into my internal dialogue, my futurizing, fantasizing, anything for distraction. This led me to hurting my body a lot. When I used my body I was not present in it, not feeling my body’s warning signs of pain, until it was severe enough to pull my attention out of my head.
At the same time I was immersed in feelings which I could not escape. Trust me when you get sober there are a lot of sacred tears. Sometimes I felt like I could not bear the pain that welled up in my heart for things that were the hardest to heal, to forgive myself for, to accept. I wanted to run into mind altering, but I had committed to myself that I was staying sober, so I chose to deal. At first it was unbearable and sometimes I thought my heart would just explode, and I wished I could get out of my skin as I felt like I couldn’t stand feeling anymore. What I learnt to do with the guidance of my teacher was to go into the feeling, to stay with the feeling, something that is very counter intuitive for an addict, we have trained hard to not do that. The big surprise for me was that if I had the courage to stick with the feeling from a grounded place and not blank out, it crested like a wave and then dissipated like a wave. I then did my healing work & moved it out of my energy body and healed the piece that was ready to go. Now we don’t do healing work on an issue and eh voila it is done. We are like ‘like an onion’, as Shrek says. Our healing comes in layers, we think we’re done with a particular issue and then when we’re ready to heal the next piece, the universe provides us with an opportunity to do so. Eventually we are complete with that issue and yeee haa freedom.
So yes indeedy feelings do teach us respect and honour of the physical, and let’s not forget about all the amazing, wonderful feelings there are as well.
What have feelings taught you about the physical?
